The second day of the festival.

I didn’t want to waste my energy unnecessarily, so I sat on a bench in the central street, where there were the most people, and carefully observed them.

「𝙉𝙤 𝙘𝙝𝙖𝙣𝙜𝙚𝙨 𝙩𝙤𝙙𝙖𝙮 𝙚𝙞𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧.」

In fact, it’s just unnecessary paranoia. Logically speaking, there’s no reason for the person targeting Yoo Hye-jin’s inauguration ceremony as the dean to suddenly move up the timing of the attack.

That’s why I was a little relaxed and just checked the situation from time to time.

“. . . Junior. What are you doing here all the time?”

Then, another unexpected guest came to me. It was Arietta Morgan, a third-year student who was thoroughly enjoying her last festival.

“You’ve been going around every single stall since yesterday. Have you had enough to eat?”

“It’s not nice to judge people by what they eat. I just had a taste.”

“But I heard there were complaints because you ordered so much.”

Since it was my area of responsibility, I was contacted and it was troublesome.

I looked at Arietta with an annoyed look.

“. . . I like people who are open-minded.”

“I don’t really care since it’s already in the past.”

Anyway, the fact that she came to me like this means that she must have something to ask me. When I asked her about it, Arietta made a request to me with her characteristic expressionless face.

“There’s something I want, but it was too much for me.”

When I followed Arietta, we arrived at a shooting range located in the same B area as yesterday.

No, why do people keep leading me this way?

“Junior, for some reason, you seem like you can do anything.”

“Actually, I don’t think so. . . . . . .”

Is that how I’m seen? Honestly, I’m not sure myself. However, when it comes to shooting, it’s definitely not an area where I lack confidence.

Bang!

Clang!

Boom!

“Wow, a score of 1050. That’s a record. . . . . . .”

Just like that, I handed the raccoon doll, which was the prize, to Arietta.

Arietta said to me with a triumphant expression, as if she knew this would happen.

“See.”

“. . . . . . .”

I thought it would turn out like this, but it’s not bad since the result is good.

I thought the day would pass by like this, but suddenly, Arietta said something unexpected.

“. . . . . . By the way, the fox sensed negativity earlier. Did you do something, junior?”

“Negativity?”

“Probably some kind of curse. It was only for a moment, so I’m not sure.”

Since  the White Yang has the power to repel negativity, it’s probably not a simple mistake.

In that case, it was highly likely that Yoo Hye-jin’s life was being targeted.

「𝘼𝙧𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙮 𝙥𝙧𝙚𝙥𝙖𝙧𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙩𝙤 𝙥𝙪𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙞𝙧 𝙥𝙡𝙖𝙣 𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙤 𝙖𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣?」

They’ve put their heart and soul into this plan, so they’ll naturally want to check the site as much as possible beforehand.

It wasn’t that strange for them to send their subordinates to look around the festival.

「. . .𝙒𝙖𝙞𝙩 𝙖 𝙢𝙞𝙣𝙪𝙩𝙚, 𝙢𝙖𝙮𝙗𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙞𝙨𝙣’𝙩 𝙨𝙤 𝙗𝙖𝙙.」

I immediately took Arietta with me to find Shin So-ra, who was enjoying the festival, and brought her to a secluded place.

“What’s going on? I was having a good time.”

“I need your help. You didn’t forget about what we promised yesterday, did you?”

“It wasn’t a promise that I would come if you called me in a day, but I can’t help it since I said it myself.”

As an apology for the misunderstanding in the past, Shin So-ra promised to listen to my request someday without asking any questions.

Of course, it was within the realm of possibility, but something like this shouldn’t be a problem.

“I’d like to borrow that ability that you used on me.”

“In what way?”

“There are people I want to find among those who came to the festival.”

I briefly and appropriately modified my words to convey to her the information that there might be people with seeds of discord.

“I wonder, maybe it’s just your imagination, but you want to check it out just in case?”

“That’s right.”

“If that’s the case, of course I’ll help.”

With that, Arietta, Shin So-ra, and I started searching for traces of Yoo Hye-yeon’s group.

I thought it wouldn’t be easy since there were so many people, but the situation progressed surprisingly quickly.

There were so many people who stood out more than I thought that it was embarrassing.

“Over there, the person in the gray cardigan. The one over there has a similar vibe too.”

Perhaps because they had harbored thoughts of revenge and dabbled in forbidden arts together, their feelings and essence seemed to be similar.

Thanks to that, Shin So-ra was able to distinguish them relatively accurately among the people.

“Are you writing down the personal descriptions properly?”

“I’ve checked everything you told me.”

“By the way, this is really suspicious. . . . . . . There are more than one or two people who are similar.”

There were already seven people that we found, so Shin So-ra also came to the conclusion that the situation was not normal.

Whoosh.
